Carlos Mejia raised to 12,000 from the hijack, the player in the small blind three-bet to 56,000, Romeo Mendoza called from the big blind, and Mejia folded.

The flop was 10c9d8d, the small blind shoved for about 105,000, and Mendoza called with 10d10h for a set of tens, leading his opponent’s AcAs.

The 10s turn locked it up for Mendoza with quad tens, sending the remaining 70 into the money and onto Day 2.
